Semantic web technology

Garlik has been innovating at the forefront of industrial strength Semantic Web Technologies. The Semantic Web, otherwise known as the "web of data" provides a standardised method of representing information in a way that enables machines to understand and communicate meaning about data at Web scale. Garlik makes use of Semantic Web technologies to organise, store, and query the vast amount of personal information found in the public domain.

All the information collected by governments, banks, and public offices during our lifetime are stored digitally, this information combined with the sheer amount of personal information left on the World Wide Web (via interaction with Social Networking Sites, blogging, etc) , need to be stored and represented in a common format so that Garlik can best protect its users from the potential abuse of their online identity.

Powerful protection of personal information

Garlik's core business revolves around the capture and monitoring of personal information, whether it be specific data sources provided by our partners, information harvested from the World Wide Web, or information captured from illegal stolen data channels, the ability to adapt and index new information in an agile manner has been fundamental to our system design.

The ability to react to the existence of a new source of compromised data in order to effectively protect our customers' personal information from being abused by criminals is presented as one of the key motivating factors to our development and deployment of our award winning Semantic Web technologies.

This flexibility which has been designed into our systems from the outset allows for arbitrary data to be indexed and searched quickly is presented at the key motivation for our focus on Semantic Web technologies.
